Pre-Travel, Vehicles

(Pre-Travel Information...)



Safari vehicles are usually open 4×4 vehicles and are designed for guests to have all round visibility. In East Africa, on vehicle based safaris we generally use closed vehicles to accommodate for the longer driving days. These closed vehicles have large windows and roof hatches to ensure excellent viewing opportunities. There are some exceptions to this in order to accommodate certain environmental conditions such as excessive dust and/or heat, or in temperate climates such as Chelinda on the Nyika Plateau in Malawi where they may use closed vehicles with viewing hatches.


Subject to availability and camp dependent, private activities and/or a private guide can be arranged at an additional cost. If you elect not to take up this option, please note that you will be sharing activities such as game drives, boating, guided/nature walks, mokoro, etc. with other guests. The number of guests per vehicle/activity can vary – the norm is six guests per vehicle.
